Caproxen


#1

Found this product being advertised on another Hairloss forum. It`s called Caproxen and is apparently FDA approved. The package it comes in looks very similar to the Rogaine package. Anyways, if some one has any experience with this product or any other info let me know.

If you read the website, it says the product contains an ingredient that is “approved by the FDA and clinically proven to inhibit DHT”, the only product I know that does that is finasteride, does it mean that Caproxen contains both minoxidil and finasteride in a topical lotion?

I couldn’t find a list of active ingredients from the site.

Nope, just minoxidil.

Click on the “FAQ” button near the top of the page. Then holding the cursor over “What is Caproxen?” produces the following admission: “Caproxen contains a FDA-approved topical treatment called Minoxidil that is clinically proven to regrow hair. Caproxen also helps to reverse the progression of hereditary hair loss.”

Yes Indeed. Its minoxidil. I shouldve checked the FAQ`s before posting. My bad:-(

It’s very misleading on their website they say something like this is a FDA approved product for inhibiting DHT , minoxidil is not approved for DHT inhibition!

Finasteride and dutasteride aren’t “DHT inhibitors”, they’re “5a-reductase inhibitors”. The term “DHT inhibitor” was just something made-up by posters on hair loss sites. It’s not normally used by doctors, chemists, or medical researchers, unless they happen to spend a lot of time on sites like this! :slight_smile:

I suggest that everybody use the same terms that doctors and medical researchers use, not these silly made-up things that are often confusing and ambiguous.

well, for the most of us that are used to internet surfing and forum browsing, those are more familiar terms, that’s why they are mostly used, but you sure have a point in this, sometimes they turn out confusing :confused:
